Joe Hart dropped by Gareth Southgate for England's friendly against France

Show Grid

However, Hampden Park erupted in the 87th minute when Leigh Griffiths curled home a 25-yard free-kick for his first worldwide goal, before lightning struck twice in the final minute of normal time as another set-piece from the Celtic star put Scotland on the brink of a famous Group F victory.

"Overall the objective is to qualify and we are top of the group".

It was great for me personally to lead the team out, a very, very proud moment and to get that goal at the end made it even more special.

To come back from 2-1 down with the whole stadium bouncing and the memories that might have brought for the team, they put that to one side and they came through it. We have got leaders in the team, and it is just that I am wearing the armband. "You have to expect the unexpected and we were 2-1 down from nowhere, but we found another gear".

"The way the game panned out, it was a good point for us".

England come full circle on Tuesday as Gareth Southgate's side finish their season with a trip to France, scene of their disastrous showing a year ago at Euro 2016.

SCOTLAND manager Gordon Strachan said he was proud of his players after they were just seconds away from a historic win over the "old enemy" England in a World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park. "I think there is great potential. but of course we have an enormous journey to go on to match teams who have already won World Cups and European Championships with players who are Champions League winners regularly". It's not often they come off, it's special.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points".

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody". "We know the size of the challenge and it is one we enjoy taking on", he said. Northern Ireland stayed five points behind Germany in second place after an stoppage time goal by Stuart Dallas gave them a 1-0 win in Azerbaijan.

"We knew it was going to be tough away from home, global qualifier, Scotland are doing everything to stay in the World Cup".

England were left in no doubt as to what kind of afternoon awaited them before kick-off when, the English national anthem, was drowned out by a volley of Scottish boos.

With Gary Cahill and Joe Hart having captained England often in previous years, the odds seem stacked against Kane as he bids to become England captain - something he admits he'd like to do.

However, Scotland 'keeper Craig Gordon really should've done better, palming the shot straight into the back of his own net.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's goalscoring impact off the bench in Glasgow gives him a chance of a start, while Ben Gibson and Kieran Trippier will be hoping to make their senior debuts. Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had been on the pitch only six minutes as substitute for Rashford, cut in from the right and ended a fine run with a superb left-foot finish.
